Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: The best Dead, and that's all there is to it.

A Grateful Dead demon has been dispatched to your residence to set fire to your copies of Cornell, Buffalo War Memorial, all of 1977, Farewell to Winterland in 1978, One From the Vault of 1975, The Alpine Valley run of 1989 and the Branford Marsalis shows of 1990.

You will have wiped from your memory henceforth any knowledge of the following Grateful Dead songs, based on your blasphemous musings about the Dead retiring in 1974:

Help on the way, Slipknot, Franklin'sTower, Music Never Stopped (for you it will), Crazy fingers, Fire on the Mountain, Terrapin Station, Estimated prophet, samson & Delilah, Pasenger, Althea, Touch of Grey,, Standing on the Moon, Shakedown Street, I need a Miracle, Throwing Stones, Brother Esau, Stagger Lee, and Picasso Moon (OK, so that one's a blessing. Many others i'm too tired to list.

Lots of cover tunes performed live as well, like Visions of Johanna, and Lucy in the Sky (OK, another blessing)....

good heavens, man...can you really be OK without those songs ever seeing the light of day?

I wouldn't be OK with it. Most of us probably wouldn't, including Ghost. That is the beauty of the band and the vast archive of material, there is something there for everyone. Ghostofpig's favorite era just happens to be my least favorite. Alot of that maybe has to do with the fact that he lived thru that era and I didn't, who knows. But we can agree to disagree and it's all cool.

I would have hated to miss Peggy-O, Crazy Fingers, Shakedown Street, Standing on the Moon, Victim or the Crime, and a host of other stuff!

Really? Victim? I would have thought that was an example in YOUR favor ;-)

all in good fun, as always.

Still jealous about you catching shows at the Fillmore. Damn.
